time to replace the drivetrain
« on: December 23, 2008, 10:17:12 PM »
Well, I've had my period of mntc. free riding but alas the time has  come for new rings, chain,cassette. I'm going to go ahead and get that sweet new Chris King bottom bracket and throw some new tires on the wheels after they are trued.  It costs as much mntc. on the bike as it does a car.  Anyone have any hot numbers they recommend for the lottery? I'll play the first six. And they better not be 1-2-3-4-5-6.  ;D

Here are the magic numbers (kinda like in Lost) - 1, 29, 0 (single speed, 29r, fully rigid).  Just keeping repeating them while sticking your fingers in your ear and wonderful things will happen.
